Fifth Avenue Models
Cast & Crew
Isoel Ludant, the beautiful daughter of a talented but unsuccessful artist, supports both her father and herself by working in the shop of a fashionable modiste, where she is occasionally required to act as a model. When she attracts the attention of Francis Doran, an art dealer and connoisseur of women, another of the models makes a cutting remark to her, and Isoel attacks the girl furiously. Isoel is discharged and informed that her father, Joseph, will be arrested unless she pays $150 for a dress she ruined in the fight. When Joseph learns of this, he determines to get the money and agrees to accompany some crooks on a job in order to identify a painting they want to steal. The gang is arrested, and Joseph is sentenced to 3 years in Sing Sing. Unable to find any other work, Isoel is forced to become Doran's secretary, a position that places her in many embarrassing and compromising situations. Knowing nothing of her father's disgrace, Doran professes his love, but Isoel believes his intentions to be strictly dishonorable. Joseph is released from jail, one of his paintings is acclaimed a masterpiece, and the yellow press headlines the news that he is an ex-con. Doran stands by Isoel in her time of disgrace and wins her grateful love.
